My clematis have buds .... and my butterfly magnolia and viburnum (juddi) should bloom any day... but my Iris are still merely a clump of very beautiful green foliage.

Wow! I thought Cinci had an early season -- you have me beat by at least a month LilyLady. And that Iris is a stunner!!

Yay! Spring!! Woodpeckers at the feeder, purple martins swooping low over the lawn, robins so fat you can't picture them actually flying!!!!

Hoooray!!!

Lucky you! I planted 2 clematis in the roots stage and that was about 45 days ago and nothing has come up. I wonder if they ever will and I should just try something else or be patient.

Well, looks like I've lost a very special variety of black eyed susan and a purple coneflower this past winter. Anyone else lose anything?

Default Well, for crying out loud....


It snowed most of the weekend. My yard is now buried under this white icky crap again. I still have to build my veggie garden before I can think of planting the darn things. Pete's sakes.....Where's my hair dryer? I'm sure I have an extension cord that will reach all the gardens.....grr

My husband says it looks like a lamb. I don't know what I think it looks like - other than weird!
I believe that is probably the dwarf bearded iris, as they bloom about a month before the tall variety, with an intermediate variety blooming between the two.

Central Maryland is definately at the peak of spring flowering, with the later daffodils in full bloom, midseason tulips now blooming, some Bradford Pears and Forsythia finishing up, but yesterday I saw the first dogwood starting to bloom (though many haven't started yet), the late-season cherry blossoms (Kwanzaans especially) coming into bloom with azaleas and lilacs coming soon. This is an interesting time of year as northern states are just getting into spring bulbs and the deep south is starting to transition into summer. I'd say here blooming is about "normal" in terms of schedule this year. Overall the trees generally show small leaves and are in the process of leafing out here. (Last year was unusually early; I saw a rose blooming at the end of April!) It shows that spring is a fairly brief but exciting season.
